Get Global

Get Global is a creative and innovative curriculum for broad based change; one that will inspire, ignite and awaken youth’s passion for driving change and community development and transformation. Through the program, we empower young people with skills and tools they need to thrive as active global citizens and as leaders in their generation. Young people are the world’s future work force and are sitting on talents and willing to try new things. Our mission is to help young people realize their call and `mandate for global transformation. The get Global Steps activities enable the students to move from choosing an issue that is important to them, to exploring it’s local and global dimensions, planning and participating in action, analyzing and reflecting on their performances and monitoring, recording and assessing their work. Through Get Global

  • Young people can have a say and take responsible action in their own community, be it in school, local, national or global level.
  • Young people are encouraged to come together, work as a team, brainstorm ideas on issues that are relevant and raise ideas on how to solve common problems in their community.
  • Students learn more about PRA (Participatory rural appraisal) and are able to develop the skills and confidence to discuss and resolve issues
